Loved pampering your skin at salons and spas, and missing those days of self care? Well, this is a common story and most of us at home during this quarantine period feel the same. However, being at home doesn’t mean that you should just sit wait for the salons to open and stop taking care of your skin.
It’s not that you can get the skin treatment only at salons and spas. Our kitchen is the best place at home to find some really amazing ingredients to get clear and glowing skin. Use these simple ingredients to get rid of dull and tired skin. We have dig out some of the best facial mask recipes that you can try while watching your favourite programme on TV.
And, you know one positive thing during this corona virus lockdown is that you can take good care of yourself. Since there’s no junk food and unhealthy ingredients, your skin is definitely on a self-rejuvenating mode. No exposure to dirt, dust and pollution. Most importantly, you have that extra time to pamper your skin to get that parlour like glow.
So, here are the best homemade face masks to give you a clear, blemish free skin.
1. Turmeric, Malai and Lemon Mask
You must have heard your grandma talking about the benefits of turmeric and malai for skin. Use it now – take some malai in a bowl, add a pinch of turmeric and a few drops of lemon juice. Mix well and apply on your face. Leave for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off with water. This mask works wonderful for people with dry skin as malai moisturises while lemon and turmeric bring a radiant glow. People with oily skin can use curd instead of malai.
2. Coffee-Honey Mask
Your skin would love the mask as much as you enjoy sipping your coffee. Add a tablespoon of honey to a tablespoon of coffee and mix well. Apply on your face and rest for 10 minutes before washing it off with water. Aside from hydrating your skin, the face mask helps reduce puffiness and get rid of rigid acne scars.
3. Banana-Honey Mask
Banana is not just good for health, but also your skin. Take a fully ripe and mashed banana and mix a little honey. Wash your face, apply the mask and leave for 15 minutes. Wash it off with water to get supple and glowing skin. However, avoid this mask if you have oily skin.
4. Potato-Tomato-Cucumber Mask
You must have your refrigerator full of fresh veggies. So take out potato, tomato and cucumber and cut slices. Blend them in a mixer to make a fine paste. Apply on the face and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing with clean water. The homemade face mask reduces dark circles, gives even skin tone and natural glow.
It’s not a face mask, but a rejuvenating face mist to soothe your skin. Take aloe vera, lemon and cucumber juice and add rose water. Store in a spray bottle and refrigerate it. Spray directly on your skin after washing your face for the cooling effect.
